Spring isn't officially here yet, but it sure feels like it. On Tuesday, some folks went for a bike ride along Victory Memorial Parkway in Robbinsdale. While others took a different route and took their bikes inside for repairs. Amy Miller and her 4-year-old daughter, Claire, are trading in a bike at Erik's Bike Shop in Maple Grove. "This is her second bike now, she started at 3 and now we're ready for the next bigger bike," said Claire's mom. The Millers weren't the only ones thinking about biking. There was a steady stream of customers at Erik's in need of a tune-up. "This morning I think we had three people waiting outside," said service manager Rick Diaz. Diaz recommends a hand air pump or even a tire that folds up in a bag to help keep you on your way. "I think the biggest thing is getting people out and riding," he said.
